  1. just make sure you put your donation in the honesty box. Don't want to anger the locals,
  2. PPSC this year are all gunna be fully self sufficient. Im sorted for luggage, got a sweet 40l motorcycle drybag off aliexpress. this fits my small new kathmandu singleman tent and thermarest, small sleeping bag and i have put 2 motorcycle jackets and some motorcycle pants in here to get an idea of what extra room i have in the bag, should be plenty. The tail section of the bike has a small compartment that holds my spare tube and puncture repair kit, and the factory tool holder has most of my tools with a few extras to go in the tank bag. Tank bag will hold my wet weather onesie, tools, camp cooker and food as well as a few tools. Its pretty big. Just need to figure out where i put my booze.
  3. So this bad boy is all finished just in time for DGR, had a pretty lush day filled with a few ales and some quality @My name is Russell banter. tried to find some penguins to club, couldnt, so got a photo instead when i got home i packed my tent, themarest, sleeping bag and a shit load of clothes into my 40l bag to see how it will sit for east cape, perfect. Gunna be lush to be 100% self sufficient this year yea rad
  4. couply hours in the shed and the GP looks like a bike again, should be doing ring dings again later tonight if i can get an hour or two in the shed once the kids are in bed. Tight timeline for DGR but gunna make it!
  5. oh oh oh i forgot the coolest part. Had our resident PPSC pinstriper do some subtle tank art for it. PENNY PINCHERS SCOOTER CLUB BUY FOR CHEAPS SELL FOR HEAPS
  6. sooo we moved into our new pad. i sorta half unpacked my shed and then got the itch to do something motorcycle related. Im taking the GP125 on the Te Uruwera ride, and decided to use it on DGR also, so what better idea is there to completley strip it down 2 weeks before DGR and then have it sandblasted and powdercoated right? bai felicia Got it back from the blasters yesterday and took it straight to powdercoaters after i put sacrificial bolts into all the threads. Hes gunna have it ready next monday maybe so might have to take a day off work next week to smash it together before DGR. Gave the cylinder and head a lick of paint and scraped back the ends of the fins while I was at it. I had all the bits for the '82 Z50R sandblasted at the same time so i can start restoring that for the young fulla now too, excite.
  7. @Tumeke i got the last 241 in 18" off richard, but im only running it on the fron as they chew out pretty quick on the rear. I brought this shinko 244 (far right) for the GP for this ride, its 18x3.00 but then i stumbled upon the NOS 18x3.00 trials tyre (on the left) which im gunna run in the interest of period correctness. Those 244's are available in a heap of sizes and are good tyres, i run them on my XR. can probs sell you that one if ya want as i likely wont use it now but probs easier for you to grab one local.
  8. KIA ORA WHANAU, MY NAME IS BLIZZO AND I AM THE SON OF BIZZO AND THIS IS MY PICTURE I WILL BE RINGING AND DINGING ON THIS LOVELY WEE GAY PENIS 125 APTLY NAME "THE RELIEVER", IN BETWEEN THE RINGS AND THE DINGS THERE WILL BE SOME OCCASIONAL DARTS BEING CHOOCHED AND BRIAN LOWNS BEING SUNK.' WATCH OUT ON THE MOTU COS I WILL FUCK YOU UP UNLESS THERE IS A BOYLE THERE AGAIN ON A BIG BLOCK TA
  9. if its anything like the GP removable needle seat there should be a tiny o-ring around the seat that holds it in snug when it goes in, the replacement carb i got didnt have one on it and did massive dinosaur wees until i realised why
  10. ive talked to J5 about these, they have also added a waikaremoana loop which uses some of the roads we will be on. it confirms there is Fuel at ruatahuna hald way on the first day as well as at waikaremoana too
  11. well i was planning on taking the trombone to this years east cape ride (te uruwera) but this wee gem of a GP125 popping up on trademe for a bloody good price, with reg on hold, and after hearing @TimShadboltfan27 harp on like a barry at a sandal convention about how hard the go for that they iz i thought id grab it. first trap for young players was this hilariously added throttle governing screw that has been added and was wound right in. dude never told me about it and i couldn't figure out why it was slow, turns out it was a riding school bike and they had to limit them to stop dweebs hurting themselfs, not a problem that they have with GN125s anymore id think. so this was the slide height at full throttle with the governing screw in also note that dimple on the slide, as it turns out when that circle touches the top of the carb opening as it is in this position, is where you set the CCI oil pump to meter is max amount of oil using the lines on the pump arm and pump body. so once i had that sorted it still didnt run to good, so i whipped the air filter out which fell to bits and had all solidified so that wasnt helping, i order a sheet to make a new one. i also whipped the baffle out of the exhaust which was like 90% blocked, and with the baffle out you can see here that the muffler is almost half full with scum and oil from 30 odd years of putt putting between cones so hopefully this weekend it will be back together and close to its original claimed HP of 15 wild wild smokey horses. should be nice and comfortable for east cape, the tank itself being 10l should be enough for any fuel distance we will require so wont need to carry extra, and will run this tank back and just a small 20l dry bag strapped to the back. looks like i might be taking a bivvy to sleep in too as the cabins at waikaremoana are all booked. then its just sorting tyres, stock tyre size is a bit better than most small bikes with 300-18 on the rear and 275-18 on the from. i grabbed one 300-18 shinko 244 and will see if it clears the guard on the front, if it does ill order another and run 300-18 all round and if it doesn't ill just smack it on the rear and whack a 275-18 shinko 241 (PPSC control tyre) on the front, but would be nice to have matching styles i think. bit bloody excited to have a 2 stroke in the shed, hopefully it doesn't cause me headaches which is the predominant reason i don't usually have 2 stokes in the shed.
  12. myself and PPSC are fizzing, so far Cam, myself, mitch and nick are locked in. trying to sort accommodation this week, what did other people pay for waikanae beach motel? price seems to be $300 for a 3 bed room at the moment. also im mixing it up this year and going 2 stoke, just acquired this bad boy GP125 to use on this years ride, that will be 3 east cape rides on 3 different bikes yeoww
  13. your mum must be a real handbreak eh
  14. Yea most people will need fuel to do 155, my xr250 wouldn’t even do that on a tank. I think my cub with auxiliary tank and big block gets like 80kms or some shit so I’m guessing some of us might need to chuck a 5l in the support Wag as well for that stink. Or strap a collabsable fuel container to our backs or some shit
  15. I’ll be heading up from the manawatu, will have work ute and tandem cage trailer hopefully with a few other penny pinchers with me, we could use that as support Wag, just some mild vetting of driver required, or we might have someone keen to drive support
